JellyRolls at Disney’s Boardwalk Rumored to Reopen Next Month, Will Not Bring Back Former Performers
JellyRolls Dueling Piano Bar on the Boardwalk has been closed indefinitely since Walt Disney World’s closure in March of 2020 with no reopening date for the establishment listed as of yet.
Over the course of the pandemic, JellyRolls, owned by J.r. Five, Inc, received approval for the Coronavirus-related PPP loan in the amount of $305,100 in April of 2020. As part of these guidelines following forgiveness of the Paycheck Protection Loan, the business must use the delegated funds to aid in job retention and paycheck distribution for its current employees.
2019 payroll expenses for JellyRolls was estimated to be in the realm of $1.46 million. If you do the math, this estimates an average of $43,073 for each of its 34 employees – of which several reported never actually receiving. According to staff we spoke to, they never were sent one cent.
